For those not exactly well versed in latex fashion, I know lots of attention is paid to a tight jacket with an open front, long form-fitting gowns or the ubiquitous man’s trench. But for devotees and designers alike we know it is just as much the accessory that can make the best fetish event couture or add the pièce de résistance to a stage performance or video. And so we come today to explore a Dawnamatrix accessory, our Open Face Hood.

Recently featured in a shoot by master photographer and a man we have worked with plenty of times before, Paul Allan, surely shot our hood in a way it looks so splendid. And although we’d like to take credit (although we do put our very best into any piece of latex clothing we create), a hood makes such a striking statement about the man or woman wearing it, no matter who designs it. And this particular hood of ours, covering so tightly all but the wearer’s face, is in our opinion, one of the very best of the alternate wear accessories we make. 

Surely there are plenty of instances when somebody wearing latex falls into the mainstream for a fashion shoot, red carpet moment, or in stage performance as mentioned above. Plenty of our very best of our superheroes and villains wear hoods, and plenty a cosplayer has attempted his best head coverings as a Batman or Darth Vader (images from 2019 San Diego Comic-Con will prove this as much this year as any other). But wear you a hood as part of your style, out at a high-end fashion show, or a little get together of like-minded alternative dress revelers, you are committing to a very special piece of the textile art that we all love.

Once again, we thank Paul Allan for his photographic artistry (each time we come to work with the man it is better than the last) model Cassis Andrea and the stylist on this shoot, Andrea Soriano.
